Not aimed at you personally Cogitate but I just laugh when I see comments similar to those you use above (and they are all over the net).
I laugh because many of the same people who genuinely type and believe the above are the self same people who are critical of other riders for 'not trying' as they may perceive them because of their riding number.
Were Rossi (or any rider) not to try then he should in be given a wire brush enema treatment for his (lack of) efforts as he is not paid to bludge irrespective of his feelings regarding the product on which he rides.
